Buenos Aires’ hottest new tango band brings incredible energy and excitement to this passionate traditional music.
This all-acoustic group revel in raw, adrenalin-soaked emotion, adding a daring, youthful edginess to create their own vision of tango. The sounds of Astillero are the sounds of Buenos Aires today.
The way they play their music reflects the incongruities and madness of this urban jungle; it kicks, breaks, hurts and jumps. The fresh lyrics add to the rawness – a rough but tender voice, that cares and tears at the same time. The concept goes even beyond music, developed further by video images; both poetic and political, projected live to complement the deluge of sound.
Following two sold out London Jazz Festival shows, Astillero are back in London for a one off performance. Catch Astillero now. The secret is out, and the word is spreading!
“The sound is gutsy, raw, full of staccato… with occasional lyrical flourishes. The effect is very powerful,” writes Songlines.
Astillero will also play the RNCM in Manchester on Saturday 9th April.
